Today is Thursday

one day nearer P.O.E.T.S. DAY

Everyone have a great Thursday

I taught my cat to clean my room,

to use a bucket, brush and broom,

to dust my clock and picture frames,

and pick up all my toys and games.

He puts my pants and shirts away,

and makes my bed, and I would say

it seems to me it's only fair

he puts away my underwear.

In fact, I think he's got it made.

I'm not as happy with our trade.

He may pick up my shoes and socks,

but I clean out his litterbox.

My kitty likes my goldfish.

My kitty likes my mice.

My kitty likes my parakeets.

She thinks they're all so nice.

The way she mews so sweetly,

the way she sits and stares,

I'd have to say it's obvious

how much my kitty cares.

She doubtlessly adores them

and thinks so highly of them.

She treats them so attentively

it's clear that she must love them.

But, tragically, they disappeared

the other afternoon.

My kitty seems so lonely now.

I hope they come back soon.

A candy bar.

A piece of cake.

A lollipop.

A chocolate shake.

A jelly donut.

Chocolate chips.

Some gummy worms

and licorice whips.

A candy cane.

A lemon drop.

Some bubblegum

and soda pop.

Vanilla wafers.

Cherry punch.

My mom slept in

while I made lunch.

I think my dad is Dracula.

I know that sounds insane,

but listen for a moment and

allow me to explain.

We don't live in a castle,

and we never sleep in caves.

But, still, there's something weird

about the way my dad behaves.

I never see him go out

in the daytime when it's light.

He sleeps all day till evening,

then he leaves the house at night.

He comes home in the morning

saying, "Man, I'm really dead!"

He kisses us goodnight, and then

by sunrise he's in bed.

My mom heard my suspicion

and she said, "You're not too swift.

Your father's not a vampire.

He just works the graveyard shift."

A duck goes into a furniture store and says 'got any duck food?'

The guy at the counter says, 'sorry, we don't sell duck food'.

The little duck walks out.

The next day, same duck, same guy. 'Got any duck food?'

'Sorry little duck, I told you yesterday, no duck food here. '

The duck walks out.

Next day, again, 'got any duck food?'

The guy says 'No! we don't sell duck food! and if you come in here again I'm gonna nail your feet to the floor!'

The duck walks out. next day, duck walks in. 'Got any nails? '

The guy says 'what?... no'.

' any duck food?'

Peter starts his new job at the London Zoo and is given three tasks. First is to clear the exotic fish pool of weeds. As he does this, a huge fish jumps out and bites him. To show who is boss, Peter beats it to death with a spade. Realising his employer won't be best pleased; he disposes of the fish by feeding it to the lions, as lions will eat anything.

Moving on to the second job of clearing out the chimp house, Peter is attacked by the chimps that pelt him with coconuts. He swipes at two chimps with a spade killing them both. What can he do?

Feed them to the lions, Peter says to himself, because lions eat anything. He hurls the corpses into the lion enclosure.

Peter moves on to the last job which is to collect honey from the South American Bees. As soon as he starts, he is attacked by the bees. He grabs the spade and smashes the bees to a pulp. By now he knows what to do and throws them into the lion's cage because lions eat anything.

Later that day a new lion arrives at the zoo. He wanders up to another lion and says, 'What's the food like here?'

The lion replies, 'Absolutely brilliant!..... Today we had fish and chimps with mushy bees.'

Two old men, Dick and Norton were sitting next to each other on the London subway [tube]. Their hearing isn't good.

Dick mutters, 'Is this Wembley?'

'No,' says Norton, 'It's Thursday.'

Dick answers, 'OK then, let's find a pub and have a drink.'

Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with that expensive casement type with shutters. Today, I got a call from the contractor who installed them. He was complaining that the work had been completed a whole year ago and I still hadn't paid for them.

Hellloo............ Just because I have fair hair doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid. So, I told him just what his fast talking sales guy had told me last year, that in ONE YEAR these windows would pay for themselves!

Hellloo? It's been a year! I told him. There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung up.

He never called back.

I bet he felt like an idiot.

A short Polish immigrant went to the DVLA to apply for a driver's license.

First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test.

The optician showed him a card with the letters. On the bottom row were these letters:

'C Z W I N O S T A C Z.'

'Can you read this?' the optician asked.

'Read it?' the Polish guy replied - 'I know the fellow.'

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them talk.

Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

The missionary said, 'To tell you the truth, I'm a friar.'

How did Quasimodo know the end was near?

He had a hunch.

My brother came running in and said, 'Mum, there's a man outside with a broken arm called Brian.'

My mum said, 'That's a funny name for a broken arm.'

My mum was in hospital,

and the doctor said, 'Listen, I want you to drink a Guinness after your bath every day.'

My mum said, 'If I drink my bath I won't have room for a Guinness.'

My brother said, 'I want a job as a human cannonball.' I said, 'I'll bet you get fired.'

'Yep', said the youngster. 'I definitely heard Dad say to Mum, we might as well have the old goat for dinner today as any other day.

A Year 5 teacher was giving her Primary pupils a lesson in developing logical thinking.

'This is the scene', said the teacher.

'A man is standing up in a boat in the middle of a river, fishing. He loses his balance, falls in, and begins splashing and yelling for help.

His wife hears the commotion, knows he can't swim, and runs down to the bank. Why do you think she ran to the bank?'

Xbox, Xbox,

I also love my 3DS

and my Nintendo Wii.

GameCube, GameBoy,

Apple iPod Touch.

I never thought that I would ever

be in love this much.

Pac-Man, Sonic,

Your names are etched inside my mind

in everlasting ink.

double-jump, and climb.

That's all I want to do

with every second of my time.

This is true love.

Yes, it's plain to see.

Xbox, Xbox,
